OK, I am selling things on ebay to try and raise money for our adoption from China. We started out adopting from Russia over a year ago, but we got totally screwed, and lost SEVERAL thousand dollars. I have some ideas for an auction, but here's one I just had. "MBA for hire - let this M.B.A. work for you" Basically, I'd be selling my analytical or report writing services in the "services" section, and I'd tell a lot about our adoption in my "about me" area - hopefully without violating the charity listing rule. Is this a stupid idea, or is it workable?? I was thinking about putting the reserve pretty high - around $1,000, and putting a mug shot of me as the main picture, and a picture of my diploma with my full name blobbed out. Is this workable? Would it be a decent draw?? Would ebay shut it down??
